Summer-ise the suit. Here’s how
When warmer weather arrives, the temptation is to give up on dressing well – who wants to be sweltering in a buttoned-up shirt when you could be kicking it in a tee? We hear you. So this is how to make the suit feel breezy, even on the hottest days.
Thanks to Balenciaga, there’s a rash of vibrant-print shirts this season – and a navy suit is just the thing to set them off.
How to make a tee feel less teenage? Wear it with a suit. For maximum fashion smugness, try your tailoring a little oversized.
One of the most underrated things about wearing pink is that it looks incredible with conservative colours. Navy? Grey? Brown? Black? Yes, yes, yes, yes.
Most men have a justified fear of light-coloured suits. We blame Bert from Mary Poppins. But when it’s done right – in a relaxed shape, with a polo shirt in place of a button-down – nothing looks better on a warm day.
Not convinced that you’re the floral-print kinda guy? Consider this the shallow end of the pool: a shirt with a navy base, worn beneath your navy suit. That wasn’t so scary, was it?
